Today’s share is from Thoughtful Branches, the new limited time only stamp set bundle, available to you beginning August 2, 2016.
I’m also playing along with the TFIFc65. I used the dies from the Thoughtful Branches bundle for my cutting.
I have actually had this bundle a few days now and have been dying to try it out, but I had 4 grandsons visiting last week and stamping got put on the back burner! I will really miss them, though…….
When you are a Stampin’ Up! demonstrator, one of the extra perks is that we can purchase many stamp sets ahead of our customers-and this one just happens to fall into that category. I have been advertising the Thougthful Branches bundle for a few weeks now, and you have probably seen some samples on Pinterest-don’t you just love this set? Until I received mine, I did not realize that I could create a hydrangea with it.
I actually die cut two flower tops, one in Elegant Eggplant and one in Perfect Plum, because that is kind of what mine look like when they bloom. I offset the Elegant Eggplant onto the Perfect Plum when gluing together and once dry, I added Clear Wink of Stella all over the top, then placed a few Pearls Basic Jewels around the flower. The leaves are die cut in Wild Wasabi.
The Whisper White panel was dry embossed with the Brick Wall TIEF, then glued to the Elegant Eggplant card base. I cut a narrow panel of Perfect Plum from the Regals DSP stack and framed it with a little larger panel of Perfect Plum, then glued down my hydrangea and leaves to it. I wrapped a length of Elegant Eggplant Solid Baker’s Twine around the panel and tied a bow on the stem before popping this panel onto the front with dimensionals.
I chose a sentiment from the Thoughtful Branches set and stamped it in Versa Mark on to Elegant Eggplant, dusted it with White Embossing Powder and heat embossed it. Once it cooled, I used the die from the Rose Garden Thinlets set to cut it out. It is added to the front with dimensionals.
I really wanted to use 2 flowers on the front of my card, so I originally die cut two of each color, but when I decided it wouldn’t work, I set them aside to add to the inside. They also have been enhanced with Clear Wink of Stella, though I do not think you can tell from this angle. The sentiment is stamped in Elegant Eggplant ink.
Make sure you add Thoughtful Branches to your wish list! Ordering is only a few days away!
